Woe is me? Not this time.

Saturday, November 17, 2012

Everyone of us has gone through or is currently going through a rough patch in life. I tend to relieve those and easily fall into the "victim" role of "Why is this happening to me?" "Why is everyone always picking on me when I haven't done anything." I feel as if I need to get to the root of the problem in order to fully move forward. In reality, though, that is a luxury I cannot afford. I am TRYING to come to terms with a lot of things that have happened in my life. Unfortunately, sometimes I get depressed thinking of how people have done me wrong. I am trying to overcome this. Right now, as I type this journal entry, I am fighting this. This depressive episode will not defeat me. I will take deep breaths and remember that I already have the victory. It does not matter what happened in the past. Isaiah 54:17 reminds me that no weapon formed against me will be able to prosper. Romans 8:28 states "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose". Thank you, God, for giving me a strong healthy mind and a strong healthy body. Though I am being persecuted at work YOU, Lord, will use that for good. You will be glorified; you will be magnified. God will make a way. Praise God!

Who is that person in the mirror?

Monday, November 21, 2011

These past two years have been such a blur. I stayed in an unhealthy relationship for far too long and finally moved out on my own. I'm now a single mom. I go to school full time and work full time, also. I'm doing things I never thought I would do. I feel so far removed from the person I was, even from just a few months ago. It has been such a roller coaster ride. Sometimes I don't know which way is up, down, left, right, right or wrong. Sometimes I look in the mirror and think "How did I get here?" "Is this where I'm supposed to be?" "Who are you, strange creature?" The journey towards self discovery and self awareness is long and arduous - does it ever end?

    I feel this way alot lately, I was also in a really unhealthy relationship and came from a really unhealthy family, but now im in a good relationship and I have a loving fiance but I constantly feel like im doing something wrong and I can never get to my goal weight I try and try and try and I feel like I fail, im also introverted lol. But the best advice I could give you is to live your life for you and be the person you want to be not the person others want you to be

I can't believe this is happening.

I joined the "biggest loser" challenge at my job a few months ago. I had NO HOPE of winning. And, while I didn't win the overall contest, I did come in third place overall. And I came in first place for the women. It's amazing. I used many of the resources here on Spark People. That has helped me physically and emotionally. I'm a member for life and I will, with the help of SP and all the supportive members, maintain this healthy lifestyle for the rest of my life. PRAISE GOD!!! and thank you!
